What’s in What’s On? Your guide to our February issue – OUT NOW
What’s On is your guide for things to do in Abu Dhabi in February; Abu Dhabi Food Festival, cycling in Abu Dhabi, WWE, and Valentine’s Day.
No, we’ve not gone mad – that is a bicycle on the front cover. This month we tell you that it is possible to make your way around town with two wheels and have fun while you do it. From what to do (fitness tips), where to go (the cycle track at Al Wahtba), what to wear (helmets are cool!) and who to ride with (Raha Cycling) – we’ve covered just about everything when it comes to pedal power.
And that’s not the only way to take advantage of the glorious weather this February. Slather on the sunscreen and read our guide to the best beach clubs in Abu Dhabi. From the ultra swanky (private boat transfers and camel rides anyone?) to the wallet friendly, there are plenty of options for everyone to enjoy their day in the sun.
Or if you’d rather watch oiled-bodies perform impressive feats of strength instead of taking naps on the beach, the WWE will be back in town. We sat down with Seth Rollins and discovered just why he would like to fight Kanye West and what he would do if someone pulled his hair. (Note to self, never pull Seth Rollins hair). Other wrestling superstars making an appearance ringside include John Cena, Dean Ambrose and Dolph Ziggler. Catch all the action at Zayed Sports City from February 12 to 14.
Speaking of which, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner so if you haven’t yet planned what to do when wooing your amore, check out our round up of special offers in Abu Dhabi of the heart-shaped variety.
Asides from that we’ve got plenty of news about the latest restaurants openings, new art exhibitions to see, our picks on what to do at the Qasr Al Hosn festival and where you should shop for unique UAE made goods.
And, having done so well in January, it’s time to ditch those dieting New Year’s resolutions – at least for a few days, that is – as the new and improved Abu Dhabi Food Festival rolls into town. The initiative will see a condensed version of Gourmet Abu Dhabi take place alongside a celebration of local cuisine with the Emirati Kitchen. But we’re most excited about the Street Feast, which will see food trucks from both the UK and the UAE serve up delicious meals from their wheels. We call shotgun!
